The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

Synopsis:

"The Golden Rule is America's first environmental protest boat and began its mission in 1958 when a crew of 4 sailed across the Pacific into a nuclear test zone off the Marshall islands.

Today the mission continues in partnership with Veterans For Peace to abolish the use and manufacture of nuclear weapons while reconciling with past traumas and looking ahead to mitigate further destruction of indigenous communities and our environment at the hands of nuclear mismanagement. Join us in our commitment to a nuclear free planet as the Golden Rule sails around the US spreading its message once again. This film is a Mane Co and gnarlybay co-production.

Why it matters:

  • Today the modernization of nuclear weapons accounts for $1.7 Trillion of the US Military defense budget
  • Globally we are facing a storage crisis in the nuclear energy space. As plants are decaying, toxic waste is being hazardously dispersed, disproportionately affecting low income communities and native peoples.
  • Hundreds of thousands of nuclear refugees are still coping with the long term effects of displacement and radiation exposure as a result of nuclear testing, mining and waste mismanagement worldwide.
  • As of 2014, there have been more than 100 serious nuclear accidents and incidents from the use of nuclear power.- 60% of all nuclear-related accidents have occurred in the USA.
